I don't recall to many of bush's war mongering speech say we haven't bothered to get any new intelligence. Bush choose to go to war so he is responisible but it is the typical neo-con response to blame Clinton.Originally posted by: Shanti
Look, I'm not saying Bush is perfect. I'm not saying that their weren't intelligence failures during the Bush administration prior to 9/11 and prior to Iraq.
All I'm saying is that those people claiming that this was a "false war" based on Bush's lies about WMD are wrong.
Was the intelligence about WMD's wrong?
Sure looks like it right now.
Was it all just made up by Bush and company as many people claim?
Of course not.
The majority of the intelligence used to justify the war came from the Clinton administration.
Clinton and the democrats reached the same, apparently incorrect, conclusion's about Saddam's WMD's and WMD programs.
If the democrats were fooled by lies as they say now, then Clinton played just as big a part in doing the fooling as Bush.
EDIT: And to those who think the idea of Saddam giving WMD's to terrorists was just a Bush scare tactic, remember, Clinton said it first.
